Norton Antivirus 2013 software by Symantec helps you to protect your PC by detecting, tracking and removing harmful viruses and spyware. It features PC file deep-cleaning, email scanning and up-to-date delivery of the latest in virus protection.
New to the 2013 version are threat-removal layer protections that go after threats that other antivirus programs miss, and automatic installation of updates throughout the year. Added to that protection insulation is free 24/7 technical support by phone, live chat or online.
Exclusive to Norton Antivirus are features like browser protection that stops and blocks online threats as your browser loads, or Download Insight 2.0, a sub-program that analyzes applications before you load them and identifies unsafe or potentially harmful threats. Also exclusive to Norton Antivirus is Norton Management, which is a cloud-based control program that allows you to fix, renew or update your Norton Antivirus program, and groups together protection for all your devices like your tablet, smartphone or tablet.
Norton has improved on several of their threat-level features, including SONAR behavioral protection and Live 24/7 Threat Monitoring. SONAR basically monitors your PC for suspicious activity while the 24/7 Threat Monitoring constantly searches a global database for new threats and keeps you up to date with solutions to eliminate those threats.
